Name and Role at BNI: HIjab Maryam – PYP Year 2 Homeroom Teacher.
Why BNI: I believe that it is very important to have a child in an environment that is consistent and secure. Children need to be able to form secure attachments not only with their parents but also their teachers/caregivers. Simply being in a loving and nurturing environment helps students form these types of attachments. I want the children to feel as comfortable and secure as they would in their own homes. And BNI has given me an opportunity to achieve this.
Certifications: I have attended in-house workshops and training sessions focusing on the aspect of Primary Years including a cross-department workshop on Differentiation and Assessment.
My Experience: I have done Bachelors in Arts and have taught early years for fourteen years before shifting my focus to primary years.
Fun Fact: I have a sweet tooth and cannot ever say no to dark chocolate.
